Hello! My list is based on the original UK LPs released during their time together (excludes The Oldies But Goldies compilation):

1. Rubber Soul The transition from a singles group who made nice albums to an album band who put out great singles. They were never cooler.

2. A Hard Day's Night Entirely self-penned, brimming with romance and never was the sheer joie de vivre of Beatlemania better captured.

3. Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band: A pristine time capsule which still unfurls like a Victorian Fairground.

4. Abbey Road Pulled out all the stops for their last hurrah with a polished slice of genius.

5. Revolver Fascinating diagonal step into new territory, but pulling in two directions with John & George's jangly acid vs Paul's consummate vignettes.

6. The Beatles: Sprawling smorgasbord of contrasting styles. A bizarre patchwork quilt of lunacy and genius, seasoned with nonsense and brilliance.

7. Help !: A game of two halves: side one chock full of melody and angst, their best to date. Diluted by a flipside of mostly filler plus the inescapable "Yesterday ".

8. Beatles For Sale : Weary fabs serve up a jaded offering padded out with (even then) dated cover versions.

9. Please Please Me Touchingly fresh and zinging with cheek and energy. They were still wet behind the ears.

10. With The Beatles To a degree replicates its predecessor, but lacks PPM 's startling novelty factor.

11. Let It Be Disappointingly ragged coda, riddled with polished up outtakes and blurred by the fingerprints of Spector and the shadow of Klein.

12. Yellow Submarine A glorified EP fleshed out by George Martin.
